Summary: Could never get it to work despite spending 5+ (futile) hours trying to install w/provided Windows CD. USB fevice not recognized on HP and Dell desktops or ASUS laptop (all Windows 7). Had to go to device manager and manually troubleshoot/update drivers but only worked on one machine and reset factory after reboot. *This Jabra unit _is not_ comparable to the USB WiFi (B/T) dongles upon which it is marketed.
Summary: I Have Gone Through Close To 25 USB Bluetooth Adapters And Could Never Find One That Would Work Correctly With My Laptops Till I Came Across This ( Jabra A320s A2DP Bluetooth Stereo USB Adapter ) . I Works Well With BROADCOM'S Bluetooth Software. Also Other Bluetooth Programs That I Use...
Summary: I Have Gone Through Close To 25 USB Bluetooth Adapters And Could Never Find One That Would Work Correctly With My Laptops Till I Came Across This ( Jabra A320s A2DP Bluetooth Stereo USB Adapter ) . I Works Well With BROADCOM'S Bluetooth Software. Also Other Bluetooth Programs That I Use... Great USB Adapter !
Summary: Works out of the box with OSX snow leopard and lion. Setup with snow leopard took a while longer than lion. Lion has support in the installer, whereas with snow leopard I had to use a usb mouse to setup the Bluetooth connection. BT icon does show up in menu bar at the top.
Summary: worked like a charm with my Mac, a little more involved with windows 7 32-bit, and it's a no-go with Windows 7 64-bit due to the lack of MS signature on drivers. You can try Broadcom drivers, but IMHO, Jabra should probably just get their driver signed and save the consumer headaches. If you're savvy enough, you can hack your way thru the 64-bit OS install, but it's not easy for a nubie. just sayin.
Summary: This product was purchased through the Amazon.com web site. This product had to have been a discontinued item. This is another item which is best purchased in your local area. I purchased this product on Amazon.com and it arrived in good time. There was a CD that came with the product, but only the driver would install. There is more software supposedly on the CD but it would not install to my PC which has Windows Vista 64 bit on it.
